A Railroa 1 Ticket," a new musical
comedy farce, which was presented at
tne uraca opera bouse last night for the
first t me in PitttmrgQ, was greeted by a
large audience, which waa also an ap
preeiitlve one. A may naturally be
aippcsed, the performance is lively, made
up of sketches hung on a slender thread,
but ft answers the purpose for which it
waa intended and makea plenty of fun.
It is saappy and lively from be
ing to end and gives no opportunity
for the aaditor' to become
wearied, unless it be on account of
too mach of a good thing piling it on
too he avy as it were. The stage settings
and mechanism are of excellent character
and .id materially in making the fun

theatre has made for the preseut season
is the Ramsay Morris' Comedy company
from New York. This organization,
like Hose of Mr. and Mrs. Kendall,
Rosina Vokee and Charles Wyndham, is
composed largely of English players.
Mr. Morris has taken great pains in its
composition, all the members having
been selected with, the greatest care for
the pet feet fitness for the parts. "Jos
eph," the comedy to be presented, is said
to be f jnnier than "The Privaie Secre
tary'1 and enjoyed a run of over 700
nights at the Theatre Dejazet, Paris. It
has me, with wonderful success since its
production in this country, critics every
where pronouncing it one of the funniest
comedii s of the kind. Large audiences
should sreet "Joseph" on Friday even
